The Austin Stack Club Under 14 footballers who were pipped by Gleann Fleisce in their final game in the Lee Strand Féile Peile na nÓg (2018) competition in Páirc Uí Chonghaile on Saturday last. Despite heroic efforts and a fantastic second half display, these Rock lads came up a little short on a scoreline of 2-4 to 2-8. Getting to this stage of the tournament with such a very young squad was a marvellous achievement and great credit is due to the entire squad for the effort given! An Charraig go deo!
